25th anniversary: Where are Alumni now?

In honor of L’École de design’s 25th anniversary, Internships and Business Relations Coordinator Maud Meudic is compiling the profiles of its graduates (Associate’s, Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees). Where are they now? What have they taken away from their studies?

Bryony Gaschy / 2005 alumnus

Céline Divay

Céline Divay / 2009 alumnus

“It’s not every day that we hit the jackpot and get our dream job the first time around! The various experiences along the way enrich our repertory, and enable us to better picture who we are and where we want to head.”

Claire Cherruault / 1999 alumnus
Freelance Art Director in Branding and Packaging
“Taking first place in competitions is always good for the ego, and perpetually drives us to want to create more and better.”

Emmanuel TERRIEN / 2004 alumnus

Maxime De Almeida’s project

Jean-Christophe Naour / 2007 alumnus
In-house designer at Samsung Electronics

Marie Piet / 2002 alumnus
Design Manager for the Chocolate Centre of Excellence at Nestlé
“Experiencing things from the inside, grasping how a brand takes shape and bonds with its consumers, and also experiencing real-time production of its creations without a middle-man are quite an eye-opener.”

Maxime De Almeida / 2011 alumnus
In-house designer at Dixneuf
“Pushing through new shapes and styles is a challenge we face every day, but the finished product makes it all worth it in the end.”

Thomas Buisson / 2010 alumnus
